The federal government's Office of Personnel Management has determined that Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a medical treatment for autism, not just an educational intervention. In this writer's opinion, this might be the first step in having all insurance companies eventually cover ABA. In Oregon, this is especially important as the state has very few Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and the education system does not implement ABA programs due to their eclectic methodologies.
Some time ago, the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB), changed requirements for Associate Behavior Analysts (BCABA). It required them to have supervision by a full Behavior Analyst (BCBA). This is why I dropped my certification after paying $6000 and spending a year and a half getting certified.
The World Center for Behavior Analysis (WCBA), a subsidary of the Behavior Analyst Online (BAO), is now developing into a full membership organization. In addition, the WCBA has developed a certification in behavioral consultation and behavior therapy. The exam is currently in the process of being validated and its reliability assessed. The certification is Behavior Analysis Mastery Certificatification: Behavior Consultion and Clinical Behavior Therapy.
